Do you overclock? Might be why your machine crashes

Unless you took computer science the actual blog entry on The Old New Thing might not be that interesting but it looks like the developers over at Microsoft are seeing many cases where computers are crashing because users are overclocking their computers.  It turns out many people do not even know that someone has overclocked their computer.
I was told once that the majority of the crashes in Windows today are actually related more to bad or unstable device drivers written by third parties than by crashes in code Microsoft has written.  Keep clicking on the error reporting alert if and when you get it and hopefully this information will get back to those third parties so they will fix their bugs and stop overclocking your computer so it will crash less!
